Hideaway feels the ‘Love Saturday’ for July Fourth Weekend

Add this share

When you casually dip behind Ansley Mall and turn into The Hideaway, there are a few guarantees. A low-key vibe, a friendly crowd, and especially on Saturdays, love. DJ Darlene’s “Love Saturday” made the most of the holiday weekend.

Tristan Hartment hosts the Hideaway’s weekly fete with Andrew, Tim and Erik behind the bar. Caught by our cameras in the gallery below, this week’s party also included a Russell Tudor birthday bash.

The evening set the stage for a packed Fourth of July at The Hideaway, when all of Ansley saluted the life of Kim Bell, a nightlife veteran who died in 2020. Mother’s Music Videos by day featured hot dogs and a Braves game. That led into DJ Rob Reum by night.
